Pokemon GO: How to Beat Cliff (September 2021)

Pokemon-TCG-Seedot-Card-Art

With Fall 2021 on its way in, Pokemon GO is still very alive with content and challenges. One of the things that players can undertake at any time of year is challenging the grunts and leaders of Team GO Rocket. This can earn players Shadow Pokemon, Eggs, and plenty of items.

One of the leaders of Team GO Rocket that players can battle in Pokemon GO is Cliff. He has a team filled with a variety of powerful Pokemon that can catch newer players off guard. Luckily, his Pokemon still have weaknesses that can be used when countering them.

When challenging Cliff, he will send out a team of three Pokemon that players need to defeat one at a time. While his first Pokemon will always remain the same between encounters, his second and third Pokemon cannot be known before the fight. Both of these party slots have the option between three different Pokemon each, so this can make preperation without losing to Cliff beforehand difficult. Luckily, players are free to heal and revive their Pokemon if they lose to Cliff and have a rematch right away.

Cliff’s First Pokemon – Seedot

The first of Cliff’s Pokemon that players have to take down is his Seedot. It is a pure Grass-type Pokemon, so it is weak to Flying, Poison, Bug, Fire, and Ice-type moves. Meanwhile, Seedot also resists damage from Ground, Water, Grass, and Electric-type moves.

Being the first opponent in the battle against Cliff, Seedot is the weakest of Cliff’s Pokemon. This makes it a good target for charge moves in order to force Cliff to waste his Protect Shields before he can use them on more powerful Pokemon later on. If players want to just get through Seedot quickly though, the best Pokemon for the job are:

Cliff’s Second Pokemon – Hariyama, Poliwrath, or Kingler

With Cliff’s second Pokemon, it has the option of being either Hariyama, Poliwrath, or Kingler. All of the Pokemon have the potential to cause some trouble for players’ own teams of Pokemon, but all of these Pokemon can still be countered with the right party member.

Starting off, Hariyama is a pure Fighting-type Pokemon that is weak to Flying, Psychic, and Fairy-type moves. It additionally resists damage from Rock, Bug, and Dark-type moves. With this in mind, the best Pokemon that can be brought along against Hariyama are:
